Footnotes

  • Loading the Ship is one of Nevinson's first three lithographs along with Dawn at Southwark, 1916 and La Villete, 1917 and were exhibited at the Senefelder Club toward the end of January 1917.

    "During the latter part of the War [Nevinson's] most powerful statements in black and white were in lithography [...]. The rare works Loading the Ship (1917), related to his earlier drypoint Southampton, and The Bomber (1918), recall the early prints in his Cubist manner."

    Gordon Cooke, "C.R.W. Nevinson As a Printmaker," in C.R.W. Nevinson: The Twentieth Century, ed. Richard Ingleby et al. (London: Merrell Holberton, 1999), 56.
